Shoulder pain can limit your daily activities including driving, work, looking after the children, playing sport, and even just answering the phone. It can also be particularly uncomfortable to sleep which can lead to other problems.

Use ice not heat. Apply frozen peas or an ice pack over the painful shoulder, ensuring you have a tea towel or something similar between your skin and the ice pack.
Keep the shoulder moving within
